I was not impressed with the setup of this hostel versus others I have stayed in. Having a bathroom and shower in each room is good, but to cook you need to check out a set of dishes, most of which do not even have a cutting knife of board. It seems red oculus to have to cook dinner and breakfast when room mates may still be sleeping, also awkward to cook in the bed room. The location seems good, easy walk to the train station and right along the river that runs through oslo
Overly unimpressed with this Hostel especially for the price. Rooms and washrooms were unclean and power points in the rooms did not work.
Great hostel, shared rooms are big and clean. The shower is amazing, good temperature and pressure (not many hostels have good showers). The only bad thing is the street is a bit doggy at night time, but the location is excellent, only 10min walking from the main street and central station. Totally recomended!
I felt this hostel offered you absolutely nothing. They fail at creating a homely/fun environment and it just made me think these people have never travelled or lived in Hostels. But... The hostel itself is fine, but there's no atmosphere at the place and most of the people staying there are just immigrants trying to find work. Loved the city, but the hostel had nothing to do with that.
For the amount you pay it is a terrible hostel. You get nickel and dime'd for everything. Want bed sheets? 8 dollars extra. Want to use your kitchen? You have to pay for any type of silverware or dish use. Want a locker? That'll be extra, and requires a specific type of lock that they'll be happy to give you for an additional ten dollars. Just really unpleasant. Sure its norway, it'll be pricey, but this was like the most guest-unfriendly place I have stayed in Europe.

No lockers in the rooms and the rooms are VERY warm. The staff are not super helpful - when I asked if they knew how to get to a certain airport their answer was to say 'maybe there is a train' & to look up a website. Atmosphere is average but location is good. I'd stay here again but it's far from amazing
This place was cheap. I can think of no other redeeming features.
